      Does Vitamin D Make the World Go ‘Round’?]

      Readers of the above papers need to understand that Hollis and Wagner operate from latitude 32N. I'm sure most Aussies understand that because of the amount of sea as opposed to land in the Southern Hemisphere there are less cities and less pollution so more UVB reaches the ground AND because of the way the earth tilts as it goes round the sun you end up closer to the sun when it matters than the UK does so latitude 32N is more like Brisbane than Latitude 32S as the sun shines brighter/hotter than the equivalent latitude in the northern hemisphere.

      The point really is that if it takes 6400iu daily Vitamin D3 consumption at latitude 32N unless you are taking that sort of intake you probably won't be providing sufficient vitamin D3 for your baby to prevent Type 1 diabetes.
      Similarly the 400iu/daily/D3 intake used from one month on works out at 100iu/daily for each 2.5lbs.
      That ratio of D3 intake is fine for kids whatever their weight.
      25lbs 1000iu/daily D3
      50lbs 2000iu/daily D3
      75lbs 3000iu/daily D3
      etc.
